Monty P-P, Ben F, Tristan H, Tom M and Tom P made a wonderful lunch at The Green Restaurant in Sherborne to raise money for two charities.
Here is an email from Tom M’s parents:
Dear Mrs Mahony
No doubt the boys will have already told you about the Charity Lunch at The Green on Sunday. We just wanted to let you know that we couldn’t have been more pleased with how the day went and how they took on the challenge and produced a truly excellent meal.
We were so impressed by their enthusiasm and energy, they all worked incredibly hard throughout the day and dealt amazingly with the pressure and heat of the kitchen! They made a great team and it was wonderful to see their creativity and passion for cooking shining through.
As well as raising money for the two very special charities, Macmillan Cancer Care and the Teenage Cancer Trust, it gave the boys a true insight into the workings of a busy restaurant. They had the opportunity experience what it takes to plan a menu, source home-grown and local ingredients, prepare the dishes and make sure they were produced on time, serve the food and clear up afterwards.
We are pleased to confirm that they managed to raise £505. They would like to donate £250 of that to the Teenage Cancer Trust.
